of campaigning in new hampshire, florida, ohio, and colorado, i spoke to white house senior adviser david plouffe. welcome back to "meet the press." >> thank you for having me, david. >> the endellible images this week had to do with hurricane sandy and an impact on this race because of the president's time and the images that we saw, meeting with governor christie in new jersey who as we heard gave him high marks touring the storm zone. and of course the images continue to be very, very difficult. but as we look at christie and the president together, was this the october surprise, these political foes, together in leadership, and christie giving the president such high marks? >> well, i don't think so, david. first of all, that's what leaders should do. we've had so many people affected. people lost loved ones. so many people out of power. really struggling. and so i think what's incumbent on leaders no matter where they come from or what political party, they are working together, and that's what you've seen. and it will take a long time to recover. but that's what the american people expect f
florida has learned since. >>> ♪ and on this veteran's day, we look to the thousands of men and women who have served and we'll ask if their needs have been met over the past four years, and we'll look ahead to the next four years, you're watching msnbc, the place for politics. >>> earlier we saw president obama honoring our nation's veterans during the traditional laying of the wreath ceremony at the tomb of the unknown. one of several events being held to pause and commemorate veterans day, from the sight as and sounds of parades like this in new york city, to the sheer silence of families visiting grave sites at arlington cemetery. today we all pause to thank and remember. >>> were veterans' issues honored on the campaign trail? some say not enough. governor romney neglected to mention veterans or america's wars during his speech at the republican national convention and after president obama said he would continue to fight for veterans during his acceptance speech they were not very prominent for the rest of his campaign. joining me now is former democratic congressman patrick murphy,
we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we planned for, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same percent of the electorate as in 2008. we got 65% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, voting rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battleground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino vote since 1996. in florida increase from 14% in 2008 to 17% in 2012. we increased our vote share in florida
, already in the race, which has been called in favor of the president. >> all right. florida, take a look there. this is another race that was considered to be very, very important for both candidates. we have been following all along, ohio and now florida. still too close to call, as you can see. very, very close. we will let you know how that goes. >> just a difference of 65,000 votes there. and there is a level at which there would be an automatic recall. so we will keep an eye on the difference number for you throughout the early morning now. >> as exciting as it is to have gregg and me here with you at this hour, we wouldn't just give you us. we have a super panel. you are going to want to stick around the next couple of hours. joining us on the set, pollster for president cartedder is here and the former adviser to the democratic new jersey frank lautenberg and fox news analyst. and the bureau chief with talk radio news service. i can tell you from hanging out in the green room, they are all fired up. should we get startd? >> let's do it. pat, let me can you, this was predicted to b
reform. we'll here from the foundation former florida governor jeb bush. followed by former clinton administration chief of staff john podesta. and later former senators lead a discussion on the future of u.s. energy policy. on washington journal tomorrow morning, we'll hear about the investigation in to the attacks in benghazi, libya that killed four americans. from michael her issue. the rest of the program will focused on the so-called fiscal cliff and the bush era tax rates. our guest will include alex from the mesh enterprise substitute and e than poll lick with the economic policy substitute. washington journal is live on c-span every day at 7:a.m. eastern. >>> on 16 or 17 bases in the united states we have military -- [inaudible] the average cost to agent dmield that school per year is $50,000. almost four times what the rest of the public education costs. and many -- the vast majority of our bases we use public schools. we can take the money we're spending today, pay every public school system $1 4,000 per child and save billions of dollars per year. and with the same or bet
? >> they are still counting votes in florida and -- [inaudible] bears and even greener light. i apologize. i saw that little green light and you know, it was too subtle for me. here is what we know. we certainly know that the president was reelected and we know democrats have picked up seats in the house and the senate which is contrary to what anybody in washington i think god even as -- we know they house will stay roughly the same so with his breaking news i bring you know that returns from florida and i like to spend more time on why he did this happen and what does that mean for us going forward? first, i share the admiration all around for president obama's campaign team. they were technically close to perfect in the first responsibility of the campaign team and that is to identify and turn out voters. they planned it, they executed it and every step of the way they knew what votes they needed and they went out and got them. they began weeks before election day thanking favorable votes in states where they have our people on the ground preplanned so again technically a superb operation and
, florida, ohio, virginia. obama is winning in all three of those states now and by some margin, number one. number two, the job approval rating has been up over 50% now for four months. >> dana: that is not accurate. >> andrea: another thing, after all the negative ads, bob, mitt romney's favorability jumped up higher. the negative advertisements to paint him as a felon, bully and tax evade dor haven't worked. >> bob: his momentum stopped last week. >> andrea: how do you see that? early voting -- >> bob: wait. early voting -- >> andrea: significantly gone in his favor. don't give me that. early voting was so prominent for president obama. and liberals took the network touting it in 2008. >> bob: we'll talk about this after tuesday. >> eric: one more number came out today, unemployment, disturbing. among blacks 14.3%. jumped again. >> dana: the closing argument -- >> eric: very funny. >> dana: sorry. hel >> eric: they are telling us that cbs is announcing that the new york city marathon is officially -- >> dana: i was just going to say that. we're done. several developments on the libya ter
was that they said they served him poorly. they gave him information that, especially in florida, they thought they had it and they didn't. so i think there will be a lot of monday morning quarterbacking. bottom line, campaign was certainly not good enough to win anything. hardly anything. today they concedeed florida. obama goes to re-election with 332 electoral votes, extremely decisive. he has a lot of clout. >> greg: the campaign is like buying a printer at staples. you know looks good in the box. slow to get started. once it started going it was pretty good. then near the end it got wiped out by hurricane sandy. >> eric: leave here, quickly, a long time fast you have watched the show, months ago i recommended eric bernstein who ran the campaign to step aside. after that, the obama camp rolling out of -- >> bob: would have made no difference. >> eric: we want to leigh you with dennis miller on o'reilly last night. things are so tough, so tough, miller had to make changes already. listen. >> i just want to tell you, give you the final word. this is no longer silk. my pocket squares are now
versus florida. you cut taxes you get more growth. you raise taxes you put people out of work and you bankrupt your state. >> we have you for the whole two hours so i want to get to a quick piece of president obama's op-ed because we already did governor romney's op-ed, i'll have you comment on it and then we're going to continue to chat about this all morning. he writes by the end of president clinton's second term our economy created 23 million new jobs, incomes rose, poverty fell, deficits became the biggest surplus in history. and what his point in part of this op-ed is if you look to the last democrat who he says he's shaping himself in that, in that image, if you will, you know, he was successful in that kind of a strategy. >>> the first two years of president clinton's administration weren't terribly interesting. the economy didn't do very well. however, in november of 1994, when the republicans won the house and the senate, all of a sudden, the stock market started going up, job creation started going up, we got a cut in the capital gains tax, a cut in the capital gains tax, a
vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70,000 votes. i think that reveals the politics with the cuban-american community may be changing significantly. again, this probably should not have come as a great surprise or shock to people following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement from obama with cuba. from obama point of view, i think there has been some steps made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans and making travel more flexible. there's a sense not much has changed from the latin perspective. perhaps in the second term, there may be more of a change moving forward. on this issue, we also have to look carefully at the composition of the new congress and some of the pieces moving around. some new members of congress, some members of congress that held important positions that will no longer be holding them in the next couple of years and the senator from texas, also a cuban-american. congress obviously will be critical in this whole issue, but
times." reporting on general petraeus. our republican line from florida, what is your optimism level? caller: first of all, i am a snowbird from west chester, pa ennsylvania. host: i am going to put you on hold. you are breaking up. i think your cell phone coverage or your connection is not that good. the producer will get on the line with you. daniel in louisiana, the independence line. caller: hello and thank you for taking my call. i am very optimistic and very happy that obama won. i believe the country is going to move forward. he is not going to let the partisanship bring down this country. i always tell people how i came to this country when everybody was talking about reagan. how the deficit was going so much that our grandchildren would have to pay for it. then bush came in and this is the problem we have. i am also concerned about the people who call themselves christians. when you hear them talking, they are more hateful than any other human being. i am very optimistic about this country. host: where are you from originally? caller: i am from nigeria. host: carol, try agai
. victor is on the phone from florida on the independent line. caller: good morning. host: how are you feeling? caller: the radiation is not my kind of therapy, believe me. i want to wish everybody a happy veterans day. i mean it from the soul, not the words that come out of tv. host: when did you serve? caller: from 1948 until 1972. my comment is on the deficit. all the parties have reasons for what is causing the deficit. most of americans know that -- i have cancer, yes. a tumor. it will cost the american tax payers over half a million dollars just for a what i will be going through on chemotherapy and radiation. a few years back, i found that i had implants that cost $285,000. they want to charge me $1,285 for that. i wrote to the state attorney's office to justify that amount of money. nobody answered my question outside of the state attorney's office. that upset me. so i sat down. what would be the best thing that i could do, which i wrote to obama, i wrote to congress, i wrote to all in medicare -- how to solve this health care problem we have? that is the biggest part of the de
. in florida, percentage of hispanic voters went up to 70% from 14% 2008, and the composition of the hispanic vote changed and has grown very different than what it was just a few years ago with many more puerto ricans making up the share of this hispanic vote in florida. what that meant nationally was that despite all predictions, democrats were able to keep their edge in the overall electorate. a shock to many people that overall partisan composition of the electorate looked so similar to 2008 with democrats holding a six-point edge. the other big demographics story of tuesday's election of course was women. i mean, we had, our first goal after the first debate when romney did so well and obama did so poorly showed the gender gap almost closing entirely. i mean, it had to be a shock for a lot of democrats to look at that poll. there were other polls that showed the same thing. romney really made gains among women after that first debate, in party was seen as a little bit more moderate. the issues that came up i in the debate were not necessarily, very few social issues if you recall coming
will go live now to an event with florida, former florida governor jeb bush. he's delivering opening remarks at an education summit in washington. the two-day summit is hosted by the foundation for excellence in education. >> i was in tallahassee and ahead to recruit to tallahassee in 1986. i don't think he's ever forgiven me for that. but he was the secretary of commerce as you may remember for a couple years. and after i negotiate his salary, the day governor elect renegotiate his salary, not upward but downward it turns out. that's what he is never an forgiven me. we became friends as he served in that administration. in 1993, 20 years ago, after coming off a statewide campaign, jeb and i were playing golf in miami and we went back to his house. i said she, jeb, i think have you ever considered running for governor? he said, what? the running for governor? i wouldn't do that if i were you. i'm going to run for governor. we don't think long and hard about these things, but i'm just going to do it. that was in february of 93, and at that time i've had the honor and privilege to be h

's also striking that i think president obama won almost half the cuban vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70 # ,000 votes, and which, i think, reveals that the politics within the community may be changing significantly. again, this probably shouldn't have come as a great surprise or shock to those following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement and opening from the obama -- with cuba from the obama administration's point of view, i think, there's been important steps that were made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans making travel more flexible, but from the latin american perspective, there's a sense not much changed, and there's a hope that perhaps in the second term there may be more of a change moving forward. on the issue as well, we'd have to look carefully at the composition of the congress and pieces moving around. some new members of congress, some members of congress with important positions no longer homing them in the next couple o

. egypt has taken it up a notch. florida-based pastor terry jones was also sentenced. most of them live in the united states, all are outside of egypt and are probably unlikely to ever face the sentence. they say the court found the defendants guilty of harming national unity, insulting and publicly attacking islam and spreading false information through the film that mocks the profi prophet muhammad. >> a senator saying it is immoral to have big pay disparities. he says hedge fund managers make as much in a couple of minutes as navy seals do in an entire year and is arguing to a progressive group that that is wrong, morally, socially and he says it's destructive and tears apar aeu a part what holds us together. with all due respect to the navy seals, he's right they don't get paid enough. his report is that it's socially wrong and it's immoral for there to be a pay disparity like that in this country. monica your thoughts. >> first of all the united states was built on the idea of equality of opportunity not equality of outcome. what you have now, megyn is a modern democratic party whi
student in florida who said here's what she does to complete her assignments that require internet access. she drives to her local library at night after it is closed, and sits in the parking lot where she can get wi-fi hookup. well, that's not a good answer to the digital divide is a real issue and smart government action can help drive universal access. this is what drove the fcc last year to adopt a once in a generation comprehensive overhaul of the $4.5 billion a year universal service fund. we transformed it from a telephone focused program and a waste one at that, too inefficient program focused on universal broadband. so these pillars and priorities not only guide our policy work in the united states, a guide our international engagement in the itc sector. and they have in the past, historically, in ways that have had profound effect. to explain how, let me take a detour into the air by spring. in egypt last year when the government shutdown the internet and shut down global service, many asked how are they able to do that. what does it mean that they can do that. it's a very impor
